Tum Se Milke - Cover by N V Krishnan and Smitha Passanha

Parinda (Meaning – The Bird) is an award-winning 1989 Indian film directed and produced by Vidhu Vinod Chopra. Parinda is considered by many to be the turning point in reality in Hindi cinema, as the theme of the film discusses the real life of Indian underworld gangsters and the general life of residents in the city of Bombay (now Mumbai).

This song, a masterpiece of Pancham da (R D Burman) was one of the four songs in the movie. This was the most popular one too. An excellent composition by the legendary composer and beutifully rendered by Suresh Wadkar and Asha Ji.

Here I have attempted to sing this with Smitha Passanha. I am sure you all will listen to this and give your feedback..

Alliyambal -Cover by N V Krishnan

A Malayalam song which really makes me VERY VERY nostalgic. It brings back the memories of my school days.. I had sung this song for a function to raise funds for the war fund. This was probably in 1965 or 1966.

Like "Kadalinakkare " this song again needs no intro for a Malayali. I did try to sing this almost a year ago…but did not come out as I wanted to be. I think I have rendered with better perfection now and thought I would share it with all of you …

I wish that you all will hear and let me know what you thought about this…

Movie Name: Rosy (1965)
Singer: Yesudas KJ
Music Director: Job
Lyrics: P Bhaskaran

Kangal Irandal - Cover by N V Krishnan and Subha

A beautiful Tamil song of the recent times which probably has umpteen number of cover versions. Many of the singers in the blogging world have done their version of the song.

I too join the crowd – I am
singing with an extremely talented singer Subhashini Mukund , who, according to me has sung brilliantly..

This song is slightly a deviation from the songs I normally sing. But have tried to do my best ..

Your feedback is needed for us to improve further..

Kadalinakkare Ponore (Chemmeen) - Cover by N V Krishnan

For the Malayalam film music, “Chemmeen”(1965) the movie which got the President’s Gold medal, was a major turning point. It was the first of many malayalam movies (around 25 in total) for which the veteran music director Salil Choudhury gave music.

The songs of this movie, needless to say, were super hits. It was my wish to render this song for long ..But it somehow was not coming to my priority list till a friend in , Mr.Subramanian (SUBBU) who suggested to me to sing this in one of his comments to a song of mine.. Thanks Subbu for suggesting..

Please listen and give your feedback..

Song : Kadalinakkare

Badi Haseen Raat Thi - Cover by N V krishnan

A very famous ghazal of Jagjit Singhji.. Though I have not heard this so much as his other numbers, used to like this very much. It is very soothing…

I have sung it in my own style without really copying Jagjitji’s version. I have also added certain harquats which are not there in the original..

Please listen and give your feedback..
